[chirp_users] TYT DMR Radios

For those of you wanting an alternative to the TYT software, I have been
testing Dale's work out, it does very very well. Yesterday i found my self
with
an improperly programmed DMR channel, I opened up my laptop (linux) and
fired up editcp, went in and changed the TX frequency for the system in
questiion
and that was it. I can read and write code plugs from the radio quite fast,
seems
to be faster than the TYT software, also you can in the software drag and
drop
channels zones etc to different parts, or you can open to sessions and use
drag
and drop to build a new code plug.

Again here is the URL:
https://www.farnsworth.org/dale/codeplug/editcp/

Now I have a nice accompaniment to Chirp that handles the DMR radio.

One thing, it will show a lot of errors, these are actually in the code
plug, just
ignore them and press on.

There is a version also for Windows, for those that want that solution.
